African Black Soap



African Black Soap Body Lotion is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worst bottle ever, but love the lotion This lotion is outstanding, however, it is so hard to get out of the bottle I am looking for a replacement product. The lotion is so thick it won't squeeze out of the bottle. I have to put the lid on and pound it on the counter several time to get the product to neck of the bottle. Then I have to use both hands to squeeze it into another container with a wider mouth and repeat the process until I can get out as much of the lotion as possible so I have easier access to the lotion each time I want to use it. It's a real pain!! It should come in a more conducive user friendly container.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome - HOWEVER! I just hear about This product! Was looking for a good natural body lotion. HOWEVER, the lotion is THICK, THICK, THICK! It is difficult to get out of the plastic bottle it comes in. I'm SQUEEZING AND SQUEEZING, banging on counter top to get it out, taking the top of. PLEASE does this come in a JAR? Or can you put it in a JAR? I'm a senior citizen and believe me, I get frustrated trying to get it out! Other than that, I LOVE IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Lotion Not only does this lotion soften and moisturize my skin but it also has evened my skin tone. I am in my sixties and have very light skin that tends to be blotchy. I had some scars on my arm that are now gone. I know that the lotion is not advertised for that kind of thing, but I highly recommend it. This lotion is very thick. Another reviewer suggested ajar, which I think is a great idea. What I have learned is that once I have used some of the lotion in the bottle, I poured just a little bit of distilled water in and shake it well. It is much easier to get out of the bottle when it is diluted just a little, but I still take the cap off rather than flipping the top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lotion Would love to get this in a tub. Would be easier to consume all of it rather than cutting bottle open to get all the out but otherwise great stuff

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ABSOLUTE BEST... This lotion is the BEST ever! I have been using the lotion for years, and have noticed a difference in the dark spots on my back. The dark spots are gone. Yes, this lotion is thick, but that's the beauty of it. The product is all natural, with pure, high quality ingredients, so of course the consistency will be thicker (unlike other products, whose first ingredients consist of water). I agree that the lotion is hard to get out of the bottle when you get about half way through it. solution that I have come to use is to just cut my bottle in half with a steak knife (or some other serrated knife), and scoop the rest of the lotion out of the bottle. It takes about five seconds! It works for me, and the product does not go to waste!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this lotion - hate the bottle Would have given an excellent rating but I end up wasting the last bit of lotion because I can't get it out. Turning it upside-down doesn't help when it's almost gone. Love the thickness and natural ingredients (no parabens is a huge plus). Please, please, please offer a pump bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best lotion for acne prone skin I have been using this lotion for about four years now, and it works wonders for my skin. It smells great and lingers on the skin even after hours of applying it. Nubian Heritage African Black Soap line is by far the best I have tried and continue to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABS Lotion I really like this lotion. The smell is mild but very sweet and it keeps my skin moisturized all day!! This is usually pretty difficult to do because I live in super dry Colorado.

With all of the similar feedback about the difficulties of squeezing the product out of the bottle, will your company consider changing the bottle to a pump style? Love this lotion but probably won't buy more until packaging is changed.

PLEASE, can you put the BODY LOTION in a JAR? It is difficult to get out of the plastic bottle it comes in! I actually have to bang it on the counter top to get it out each time I use it! Which is every day! I'm a senior citizen!

Asked by: LadyDi1
I also have the same problem with the packaging. What i do is place the bottle upside down so that most of the products sits by the opening of the bottle. Just make sure the bottle is completely closed when you're doing using it.

You changed the look and ingredients in your Raw Shea soap, and I highly dislike that you changed the ingredients without changing the info on amazon. I'd like to know if this is also the case with this Black Soap Body Lotion as I've come to rely on it.

Have you changed this formula? Please do not change this formula! I use your product on my acne-prone face as recommended by a consultant at Macy's years ago. Your product is the only product that keeps my skin clear.
